The Diedrach Dare: Another Sweet Pea Creation

Good morning girls! This is my first post today - I hope you'll take a look at my Cuttlebug Challenge project as well!

Sweet Pea Stamps is our sponsor this month and I have a card using another of the Ching-Chou Kuik images for you today! And sweet Kyah drew up our sketch for this week! You can totally tell that she makes cards along with her mom!

I used the Dance of the Butterfly image for my card today. I thought for sure I wanted to use the Swirls embossing folder on the circle portion so I chose one of the mermaid images. The main panel is from my local stamp club. One of the girls (hi Marilyn!) showed us how to make these panels with crayons and an iron. I have done the technique where you melt crayons on wax paper but this was different - more like using encaustic wax. SO FUN! SO VERY COOL!

And totally terrific for an image like this when you don't want to color! I love it, love it, love it! I was talking to Heather (hey girl!) on the phone while I was putting this together and adhered the circle to the blue without embossing. So I just embossed all of it and popped it up like I meant for it to be that way!

I've got to wrap this up! Be sure to visit the rest of the DareDevils and see what they created using the sketch this week!
